TLDR; We are keeping it as SimpleRockets 2.

It's been over a month since we asked you for feedback about renaming the game. We gathered almost 700 entries in the poll and got additional data with a couple of extra tests we ran.

Rebranding the game would take time (a new logo, tweaks to the website style, in-game menu, etc.) and could come with some technical issues (having to rename internal files, folders, etc.). Additionally, there are some risks when losing the gathered brand recognition, but that's something that can be overcome with time. Many benefits could come with rebranding, and the data we gathered (considering all biases) may seem to point in this direction, but they are not for sure, so there is a risk associated with it, and the risk/reward doesn't seem worth the hurdle.

It's also possible that we could get bad press online from those actively opposing the change, even if few, resulting in more damage than any benefits from the change of name. Additionally, some of you mentioned that you saw this change as dishonest or a money grab, I strongly disagree with both (and I could talk extensively about why), but we want to be as transparent as possible, and losing your trust is a concern.

For all these reasons, we have decided to stick around with SimpleRockets 2 as the name. Changes to the style of some in-game menus, tweaks to the website, and a new icon/logo aren't off the table, but it is something we have to discuss further internally. We will keep you informed. If you are interested in having a deeper look into the data we gathered check Data for nerds, it's "mucho texto" but I'm sure some of you will find it informative.

    Back again . I know this is over but after careful thinking. This game should be called simple engineering. Because you can create almost anything
